Feijoa Coconut Muffins

There’s nothing better than the smell of a muffin fresh out of the oven and these muffins from Wick at Wicked Wellbeing will not disappoint! Use feijoa’s if you’ve got any still lingering, otherwise simply swap out the fruit with blueberries or raspberries. With only a few ingredients you can whip them up in a flash.

These allergy friendly delights are gluten, dairy and nut free (if you leave off the sliced almonds on the top). They are the perfect addition to a morning or afternoon cuppa, and also great to freeze and have on hand for lunchboxes.

Wick’s Feijoa Coconut Muffins

Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 18 mins | Serves: 6 muffins


Dry Ingredients:

¼ c coconut flour

½ t baking powder

½ t cinnamon

¼ t salt

2 T LSA-P, optional but adds great nutritional value

Wet Ingredients:

3 eggs

3 T coconut oil, melted

3 T maple syrup

½ t vanilla essence

½ c feijoa pulp, roughly chopped


slivered almonds


Preheat oven to 200 C. Prepare the muffin tins, either with patty liners or grease with butter or oil or use silicon moulds.

In a large bowl, mix the wet ingredients together. Sift in the coconut flour and baking powder, then add the LSA-P (if using) and lightly fold until smooth. Don’t worry if the coconut flour clumps a little bit, it will smooth out while cooking.

Spoon mixture into the prepared muffin trays. Sprinkle over the slivered almonds. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container or serve for dessert with whipped cream or natural yoghurt (or coconut yoghurt!).
